As a Marine Interdiction Agent, your office will be aboard a CBP vessel operating on oceans, lakes, and rivers. You will be part of Air and Marine Operations team, targeting national security threats involving terrorism, counter narcotics, illegal immigration, and illegal smuggling. You may also be called on to assist those in need during times of natural disasters. High speed vessel pursuits, poor weather conditions, and crime fighting make the Marine Interdiction Agent career exciting but physically demanding.
